Pica9 Recommends That Brands Show Empathy For The Franchisee Experience
9/4/2018 - Posted by Alison Huff

To that end, Pica9’s name denotes a sense of the precision they believe a brand’s integrity rests upon. Brand cohesion and solidarity is of the utmost importance when a company has franchises operating in multiple locations. Pica9 also understands that the average franchisee, while certainly an entrepreneur, may not necessarily have a background in graphic design or marketing.

It's hard to imagine that a highly recognizable franchise with almost 400 locations could have gotten its start with nothing more than a $350 investment, but that's exactly what happened with one of America's most well known moving companies. Two Men And A Truck initially began when Brig and Jon Sorber, two high school students, wanted to make some extra cash by moving people's belongings around Lansing, Michigan, in the early 1980s. An old pickup served as their trusty moving truck, and the brothers ran their little business together until they headed off to college. The boys' mother, Mary Ellen Sheets, kept the business alive in their stead, hiring two movers and purchasing one 14-foot moving truck for just $350.
